A Clever Way to Do It…

 

Cabin owner Travis built this prefab tiny house in his back yard, then disassembled it, moved it, and put it back together on a coastal river in Oregon. It is a 12′ by 16′ house that not only can be assembled and disassembled as needed, but was also built with a number of recycled and local materials. Take a look at these photos and then tell us what you think on our Facebook Page! 

 

I assembled all the panels together in my backyard in Portland and put the roof on. Then I disassembled it and hauled it out to the coast and put it back together. For all structural pieces I used tork drive screws for ease of disassembly and modification. There is not one nail in the whole structure. I designed it modular for its portability and strength. Unlike a traditional home, which has structural integrity as a whole, each piece of this cabin has its own structural integrity. It’s strong. After much thinking about foundation options, I chose pier blocks and posts. I concluded that any structure built on the base of a coastal mountain is going to shift at some point, so why pour a bunch of concrete? The cabin currently sits on a stout, cross-braced, post and pier foundation.
